It was an overcast day making it next to impossible to capture the lush green surroundings. Moreover, the sun was also tired after the days work and was retreating for the day. After travelling for 2 hours I was upset for not getting a single good shot. Suddenly a cloud blocked the sun and resulted in a beautiful setting. I tried to captire the sun and the rays, coming as a diving blessing to all.
